Bad. Incomplete removal! There are further libtool archives in the
package which contain references to the removed files %{_libdir}/libk3b.la
and %{_libdir}/libk3bdevice.la. This makes these files useless, because it
breaks them. Either remove them all or keep them all. Do not break the
dependency chain!

$ rpm -ql k3b | grep .la\$
Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2006-03-15 16:07:59 EST
And since the plugin .la files are still needed in order to not
break loading the plugins, it is even more questionable to remove
the k3b core .la files.
